Busy Buzzy Amigurumi Bees Crochet Pattern

This past weekend I was finally able to enjoy a drink on a sunny patio. It wasn’t quite as warm as I would have liked but the sun (despite the passing clouds) was delicious and warm on my back. Slowly, the weather is warming but it’s still cold enough that most bugs and insects haven’t made their usual appearances. Normally this wouldn’t bother me and I’d even say, “Ugh, so glad the insects aren’t around yet” but with the decline in bee population I’m actually worried we haven’t seen any buzzing bees. I love flowers and produce and without the bees acting as pollinators I fear we’ll end up with a grey and barren Earth. So, with my thoughts on these insects I decided to make these two Busy Buzzy Amigurumi Bees Crochet Pattern:

  1. These are adorable!
    I have a rosebush in the backyard and hostas in the front the bees around here really seem to enjoy.
    It makes me happy to try and keep some bee-friendly plants around.
